Grade 3

Jill Wilson

3rd Grade Teacher


Hello. My name is Jill Wilson. I was born and raised in a small town in upstate New York. In fifth grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher and played the part every chance I had. Whether I was reading to younger students, volunteering in classrooms, or tutoring after school, I was always involved in helping kids. When I graduated from Cambridge Central School in 2006, I attended The College of St. Joseph to pursue an education degree. I took both general education and special education courses, though my degree was in general education. I graduated in 2010. I then began to substitute in the local school districts and work at a Summer Camp for kids as an Aquatic Director and After School Program as a Head Counselor. In the Fall of 2011 I started graduate school at The College Of Saint Rose. During this time, I continued to work as a substitute as well as at both the summer and after school programs. I pursued and received a Masters in Literacy with a Certification in Special Education in May 2013. Chester–Andover Elementary School started my teaching career. I have found a great joy and comfort as part of the community and plan to stay!

Rachel Bennett

3rd Grade Teacher


Hello, my name is Rachel Bennet. My family and I joined the Chester-Andover community in 2018. I jumped right in coaching Rec sports and getting to the local businesses. Before that we lived in Maine and NH. I was a para for 9 years in the Keene, NH school district. When my daughter was born I ran a home daycare. Then, I homeschooled my own four children for eight years. While homeschooling I finished my Bachelors in Elementary Education and started at CAES in 2021. I love helping kids find joy in learning, discovering the power of a good book, and spending lots of time outdoors.
